1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate fudge cake mix
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/3 cups
1 (16 ounce) jar
maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
This recipe is awesome! I did add some of the cherry juice to the water added to the mix and put a little juice in the frosting as well. For a family that loves chocolate covered cherries, this is an excellent cake!
Excellent cake. We didn't taste it until Day 3 (it was refrigerated) but once we tasted it, it was gone in a flash! Very moist.
It was "OK" It didn't taste a lot like cherry. i even added a little of the cherry juice to the mix as another reviewer said. Didn't help much. It was Great as a CH. cake with some cherries and almonds in it, as a Ch. Cherry cake. not so much.
This was a pretty average cake. I only made it because my husband came home from a ice cream sundae thing for his students with 3 jars of cherries. I don't think I'd make it otherwise, but it was good.
I'm torn w/this one. I can't decide how I feel about the mouthfeel/texture. The chunks of cherry are a little off-putting to me, particularly since they're not accompanied by a burst of flavor. I elected to bake as cupcakes (and bake time was longer than usual for them...close to 25 minutes as opposed to the usual 16) for easier individual serving. I frosted them w/a buttercream to which I added cherry juice and almond extract and I found myself preferring the taste of the frosting to the cake. It's a beautifully moist cake w/a nice strong chocolate flavor. If I made this again, I'd def sub at least 1/2 the water for cherry juice and see if that amped up the cherry flavor. Instead of chopping the cherries, I think I'd also simply place a whole cherry in the center of the cupcake for a burst of flavor. THANKS for the recipe, dms036!
